Earthquake Prep Ride (Portland)
July 2, 2016 at 12:00 pm
In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941. Routes listed on this website are for informational purposes and intended as a reference guide only.

We will ride a post-earthquake evacuation route connecting numerous Basic Earthquake Emergency Communication Nodes (BEECN) of the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management including Arbor Lodge Park, Jefferson High School Field, Irvington Elementary School Field, Colonel Summers Park and Woodstock Park. Ride starts at the University of Portland main entrance and ends at the keystone survival water source at Reed College’s Crystal Creek. We will have earthquake survival strategizing discussions at each BEECN location.
